Nimerudi tena!  
After a brief-- what? two months!-- retreat into my ordinary life, the allure of blogging has got me in its tiny clutches. Actually, two things stirred me from my slumber. First, Afroblog guru Ethan Zuckerman's treatise on the power of blogs, which I'm still digesting. And second, a cool-sounding public radio documentary on Mandela that's airing tonight (at least in the Bay Area):
Hear a rare recording of the 1964 trial that resulted in Mandela's life sentence; a visit between Mandela and his wife, Winnie, secretly recorded by a prison guard; pirate radio broadcasts from the African National Conference; audio from government propaganda films; and marching songs of guerrilla soldiers.
